UPDATE: The Walt Disney Company has come out and stated that The New York Times article cited below is incorrect.
The New York Times today published a piece on Disney Parks and the amount the company is investing to make the parks “spectacular” as Bob Chapek puts it. Within this piece is a Hollywood Studios map showing the expansion work taking place in that park. Most surprising in that map is what appears to be a previously-unannounced change to Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.
The plot numbered 5 in the map is indeed where Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is located. According to the map legend, this area will be overhauled and the coaster re-themed.
Remember earlier this year we told you about the re-theming of the Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster at Disneyland Paris, so it’s possible that the New York Times confused the two attractions and that only the Paris version is getting re-themed. Only time will tell for the future of the Hollywood Studios version at Walt Disney World Resort.
